Lynx dragon has some pixel problems

Sat Nov 25, 2017 11:50 am
The Lynx dragon has 3 or possibly 4 spots that appear to be incomplete graphic work.
One is in front of his closest forepaw; one is behind that paw; one is on his tummy,
closer to his hindleg; and one might simply be a stray hair, it is on his back behind his
hair at the neck level, and is noticable when he has his head in the up and back position.

While you are at it - so does the luck dragon.
Has a gray spot right above the right front paw that belongs to the head overlay

And Slam Dunk and Gladiator and the others of this style with a long tail - the animation when the tail is moving sideways looks awkward (flat)

Um, souk? Animation may be the least of it - where's the rest of Gladiator's tail?

Exactly - it's all sideways so at the time of the screenshot it is 2D ! Usually you can see it in full, it's only during the wag animation

It's always 2D:) There's some trick when people make 2D look like 3D, and that's exactly what GL used in this game. Just imagine how hungry for resources DML would be with all those 3D models and animations. And here we have just a moving succession of 2D pictures

I know that - what I meant was 1D (just a line).
the animation "turns" the tail too far so that is only a line at the outmost point of the animation path

I noticed today that Lightning Dragon also has some of its body parts (part of shoulder and some spikes) attached to its head part overlay. The are moving with the head which gives a freaky look in the right angle.
Above the front paw again.

The bee dragon (and some others of similar body shape) look like their heads are going to come off their necks while petting.

above issues are still existing in the latest update
plus I noticed that also Frostbite and Angler Dragon have the tail issue (some of the others with a Leonine-style body and a long tail).
it looks like the tail is moving backwards (you can tell from the "spine"), while at the outmost point of the "arc" suddenly the tail tip is in front of the tail
